NRRP: what it is, Calls and Funds Available | CDP

The  National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) is the package of investments and reforms prepared by the Italian government as part of “Next Generation EU”, the programme established by the European Union to help member states recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, with resources to be deployed in the 2021–2026 period to build a more green, digital and resilient Europe.

The Plan represents a unique opportunity for Italy: resources for accelerating the ecological and digital transition, improving the training of male and female workers and achieving greater gender, territorial and generational equity. The NRRP aims to foster more robust, sustainable and inclusive economic growth in this way, through European funds amounting to €191.5 billion, on top of €30.6 billion funded by the Italian state through the National Complementary Plan.

The CDP Group is using its technical and financial expertise to support the NRRP, to facilitate access to the funds allocated and the implementation of projects.
